Abstract/Summary Brisbane author Nick Earls discusses 'Wisdom Tree' a new model for novella publishing with fellow author and UQ Senior Lecturer in writing Dr Kim Wilkins.
In 2013, Nick Earls realised his five best story ideas would need padding to become novels and would lose something if he tried to trim them to short-story size. He had to write them, and they had to be novellas. He also realised it was time to confront head-on the publishing industry's reluctance to work with the novella form.
The result is Wisdom Tree, a new model for novella publishing, a PhD project and a chance to turn his best ideas into a series of five novellas to be published as individual paper, e and audiobooks at monthly intervals from May to September 2016.

Introductions by Professor Doune Macdonald, Acting Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic).
